Publisher's Summary

Hearts and loyalties collide in this electrifying new YA series from New York Times best-selling author Jennifer A. Nielsen. Nothing is as it seems in the kingdom of Antora. Kestra Dallisor has spent three years in exile in the Lava Fields, but that won't stop her from being drawn back into her father's palace politics. He's the right-hand man of the cruel king, Lord Endrick, which makes Kestra a valuable bargaining chip. A group of rebels knows this all too well - and they snatch Kestra from her carriage as she reluctantly travels home.

The kidnappers want her to retrieve the lost Olden Blade, the only object that can destroy the immortal king, but Kestra is not the obedient captive they expected. Simon, one of her kidnappers, will have his hands full as Kestra tries to foil their plot, by force, cunning, or any means necessary. As motives shift and secrets emerge, both will have to decide what - and who - it is they're fighting for.

Jennifer A. Nielsen introduces us to an unforgettable new heroine in this epic tale of treachery and intrigue, love and deceit.

Exciting

I love how Jennifer can always weave a story line with twists that you never fully expect. The way that she connects-the-dots at the end of her books, and answers your lingering questions, is done with such skill that it seems like forensic science and art have perfectly united.

Absolutely horrid

Plot had so much potential. But between being able to guess every character's move and having 2D characters with no personality: it ruined it all. Plus the narrators are very monotonous. I wish I could get a refund on how much I hated this book.
